Beat the Clock

Club Membership Contest

Program Dates: May 1 – June 30

Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, “Beat the Clock” is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule—and with a bang. The goal for your club is to earn the “Beat the Clock” award! Make this a contest in your club to encourage every member to get involved. Clubs adding five new, dual, or reinstated members during May and June receive a “Beat the Clock” ribbon to display on the club’s banner. In addition to the ribbon, qualifying clubs earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order. (The discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)

Applications and payments for members who join between May 1 and June 30 must be received at World Headquarters or online no later than June 30. Each member’s join date as listed on the application must be for May or June. The addition of transfer and charter members does not count toward “Beat the Clock” credit.

The winning clubs will be revealed online within a few weeks of the contest ending. Winning clubs should allow up to 10 business days to receive their award if they are located in the United States, and up to 21 business days if they are outside of the United States.

Remember the contest runs from May 1 to June 30. So don’t wait, start planning how your club will add five members and qualify for the Beat the Clock Award. Challenge every member to get involved and have fun!
